Picked up a Schick adjustable and a Rocket HD at a vintage market this morning. My reward for finishing my Christmas shopping.
You’ll love the Rocket HD500 as I enjoy mine, never had a Schick adjustable would interested reading your feedback

Christmas 2018 haul!



My wife knows the favourite aftershave I use and she also loves the scent when I’m wearing it!

Never heard of the shave cream before but sure smells delightful. I can’t see it anywhere on the tub but smells like limes which I enjoy.

The mug is a great touch and came with a Sandlewood soap puck. Again it smells nice.

Finally a Muhle Razor. Not sure which one it is, but what a thoughtful wife I have!

There's a review thread in the cream forum for Murphy and Daughters from a few years ago. Nice stuff from memory.

Not an acquisition but Christmas present!
Absolutely blown away that my brother in-law searched high and low from a passing comment months ago that I'd like to try a Gillette Red Tip.
So he got me this present this morning:


A British Red Tip Super Speed no doubt in very very good condition (y)
No date code and only the 'III' level rating stamped on the base. Date anyone?
He got a Dan Murphys voucher from me so his whiskey choice is wide open, if anyone asks.

Merry Christmas P&Cers!

I got these from my sister for Christmas.


Crown King (Phoenix Artisans Accoutrements) kokum butter base (pre ck-6) Lo Haiku

Ariane and Evans - Spartacus.

Absolutely love the smell of the Spartacus but get a little irritation from the soap (not enough to discourage me using it though) anyone have any experience with this? Is it likely to be something in the soap base or a fragrance issue?

Been chasing these for a while - discontinued NOS tallow version of The Art of Shaving Sandalwood.

I love the AOS NOS Sandalwood, there is an outfit on ebay that sells them in 3 puck sets btw - they come wrapped in the AOS drawstring bags if you are ever hunting for refills.
